Like pots by her sister Rachel, this elegant small disk is a variation of the ancient Sikyatki design adopted by Nampeyo (1993-04) and earlier makers of Polacca ware (1999-08). This powerful design is less-frequently used today.

See “Bird Hanging from Sky Band Design” in the Category List for a complete listing of pots in this collection using variations of this design.
